meet your match

Picture 1

I love the quirky illustrations in Matchbook - an online magazine started by blogger Katie Armour and her friend.

And I thought their feature on 10 things to do under $10 was very clever. The fresh flowers are my personal fave. I'm a total deli flower junkie!!

This list is inspiring. I particularly like the box of colored chalk.

And that's a nice shot of Audrey below!

Hi, thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog Indigo. I also love fresh herbs in cooking :)
The illustrations from matchbook are lovely. Its so nice to see illustrations still being published in magazines, I just wish there was more of it.

Indiana - I love illustrations too. So great to see them being featured - even if it's only online!!

Jess said...

Yay for matchbook mag! And I agree, the flowers were my favorite idea too!

Thanks for your comment on my blog yesterday - I'm a bit new at it and it's fun to know I've caught someone's attention other than my friends. As for your blog, I'm quite enamored. I love your love of food. And how do you manage to travel to so many amazing places so often??? Jealous!

BookGeek said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love yours already. So much here to inspire.

My personal favorite is the movie - there is something even more special catching a matinee showing than going at night.

dulci said...

@BookGeek - I agree! Maybe because it feels like we're playing hooky??

Pet said...

Thanks for the list. It brings to mind how much fun depends on ourselves and not on the money spent. I found about your blog in another one that I follow:

And now that I have had a look, I will follow yours too. La Dulci Vida, umm :-)
